Since its debut in February 2007, UVC: The Urban Voice in Comics has provided news, information and opinions about black comics and creators for all readers. This fall, UVC takes a closer look at a small but significant segment of the comics industry – black women.
Among the features in the November/December 2007 issue include the following:
feature articles on black women creators and industry figures, including Barbara Brandon-Croft, Spike, and The Ormes Society founder Cheryl Lynn Eaton a listing and analysis of the major black women characters at both Marvel and DC Comics selective listings of significant black women characters in other comics, past and present, real and fictitious
In addition, this special issue will also include articles about black women in science-fiction film and television, in animation, and as science-fiction/fantasy novelists.
For another project, Cheryl Lynn is requesting that minority (by race, orientation, and religion) women who work in the comics industry and live in the NYC area contact her.
